Everyone should be aware by now of the movement sweeping across our nation known as “Occupy Wall Street.” On twitter the hash used to refer to the group and their actions is #OWS, I will refer to them as #OWS from this point forward. Recent commentators have ‘revealed’ that a RICH, billionaire, prominent social activist, George Soros is the financial backing to this movement. I’ve been more interested in the Spiritual force behind #OWS.
The MSM (main stream media) has attempted to spin this story in every kind of direction other than what this truly is; #OWS is an act of organized chaos aimed to disrupt the flow of the market, the government, and ultimately to rob every American Citizen of our remaining civil liberties. Every half-twit on MSM that seeks to revitalize their career is talking about Occupy Wall Street. Some liberal outlets attempted to squelch the broadcast of the movement, while others are using it to their advantage.
and Music Artists show up and get a twitpic up asap!
The most troubling of all the additions to this perverted methodology of demonstrating for “Democracy” are the Churches who are joining the chorus of protestors.
Please don’t assume when I say “Churches” I mean doctrinally sound Christianity, no it’s quite the contrary. Today’s APOSTATE church has primed the Christian community for such a time as this. The Word of Faith Heresy that says, “Name it and claim it and God will give it to you ,” (think: Joel Olsteen, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Paula White, Creflo Dollar- just to name a few); this false gospel has set everyone up who follows it for failure. God doesn’t ‘promise’ “Economic Security” to the believer, He does however assure us of persecution and trials (Acts 14:22; Philippians 1:29; 2 Timothy 3:12; 1 John 3:13; 1 Peter 4:12). The “Social Gospel” Heresy has birthed the #OWS yet they would never know it. This false doctrine says everyone has the same as everyone else, Social Justice, Kingdom Now theology, who needs God when we are ‘mini’ gods and can create a millennium reign for ourselves. These people who are in this camp are radically right and left and aim to do the same thing, demonize, divide and conquer. The Seeker Sensitive, Purpose Driven New Age Utopian delusion does the same as those stated above. Rick Warren and Jim Wallis have both been used by the United Nations, World Economic Forum, and Davos to prime the corporations of the world for such a time as this (#OWS). These false teachers have been in Leadership Summits all over the world getting the upper echelons ready for the revolution that will eventually lead to the “Paradigm Shift” that they seek.
The #OWS movement you see from New York to San Fransisco, in laymen terms, is Satanic. If you deduce their goals to their basic element you realize that it’s a hodge podge of demands and vociferous whining aimed only to be prolonged and ideally as “successful” as the people’s movement in Egypt (which is still in disarray and experiencing escalating violence towards Christians and Muslims). Radical Left Religious groups have joined in, Interfaith Groups have joined in, and although we may not see it overtly the Religious Right is involved too. They are helping to form a narrative to get you to think one way or the other. Whatever you do don’t think for yourself! You stand to destroy the “Opportunity” of this crisis if you use your own God given ability to think and discern.
What this movement needs is a martyr or a messiah, and it will not matter if it’s a ‘Righty’ or a ‘Lefty’ at this point, ideally it will be both.
Franky Schaeffer is the son of the late, highly influential evangelical thinker Francis Schaeffer (Seven Mountains/Dominionist False Prophecy), who helped shape the modern conservative evangelical movement. The son boasts he was himself a co-founder of the Religious Right. But he since has denounced Christianity as “stupid,” writes bitter tell-all books about his parents, and ferociously attacks conservative religionists as the virtual root cause of all American evils.
A blogger for The Huffington Post, young Schaeffer is now faulting religious conservatives for facilitating Wall Street greed. He’s imploring the Wall Street Occupiers to “protest the root source of America’s tilt to the far unregulated corporate right.” For Schaeffer, the next logical step is to demonstrate “outside mega churches, Evangelical publishing houses, [and] religious organizations that lead the ‘moral’ crusades against women and gays and all the rest.” (remember when No8 groups targeted Churches, “Occupy Churches” has had a dry run in 2008)
Sojourners chief Jim Wallis has lavished praise during a visit to the occupiers, pacifist activist Shane Claiborne has compared them to St. Francis of Assisi, Massachusetts clergy joined them wearing saintly white robes, and officials of United Methodist Women flocked to the occupiers with their own similar placards urging class warfare.
Sojourners are Christians who follow Jesus, but who also sojourn with others in different faith traditions and all those who are on a spiritual journey. We are evangelicals, Catholics, Pentecostals and Protestants; progressives and conservatives; blacks, whites, Latinos, and Asians; women and men; young and old. We reach into traditional churches but also out to those who can’t fit into them. Together we seek to discover the intersection of faith, politics, and culture. We invite you to join, to connect, and to act. Welcome to the community.
(from Jim Wallis to Occupy Wall Street his closing remarks):
I would advise you to cultivate humility more than overconfidence or self indulgence. This really is not about you. It’s about the marginalized masses, the signs of the times, and the profound yearning for lasting change. Take that larger narrative more seriously than you take yourselves.
Finally, do not let go of your hope. Popular movements are the only force that truly brings about change in society. The established order is never as secure and impervious to change as those who preside over it believe it to be.
Remember that re-action is never as powerful as re-construction. And whatever you may think of organized religion, please keep in mind that change requires spiritual as well as political resources, and that invariably any new economy will be accompanied by a new (or very old) spirituality. (yes we know-Ancient/Future Post-Modern-One World Church plans…)
So I will say, may God bless you and keep you.
May God be gracious to you and give you -– and all of us — peace.

What is the difference between the #OWS clan and the #TeaParty gang? The occupiers want less capitalism, more social services, less military, more entitlements, more unions, less freedom, less borders, more “tolerance.”
The tea partiers want less government, more free markets, less entitlements, more private sector growth, less socialism, less taxes, closed borders, a “Christian” Country with no immigrants, no gays, no globalism, and no Muslims.
Are both able to Coexist together?
Can the Dominionists who want to take over the Seven Realms of Society live peaceably with Communists and Marxists who want a Utopia with no God, save the NationState? Can the Kingdom Now people, Post-Modern Social Justice Christians love one another until Jesus comes or at least till one of the camps is able to establish their own kingdom? Or will the United States, the great beacon of hope and Liberty fall into the hands of ultimately failure, a divided country that will look more like Egypt and Libya than the United States of America? I said this is Spiritually Driven, not by the false prophets on both sides of the isle, but by one sole source that most people in Christendom have ceased to learn about:
Satan. He is a murderer (John 8:44) He is a Liar (John 8:44). He is an accuser (Rev. 12:10) He tempts (Acts 5:3) He sows tares among believers (Matt. 13:38-39) He incites persecutions (Rev.2:10) Satan and his demons are having a field day across the globe. It is not the 99% that God is concerned about, it’s the 1. The good shepherd will leave the 99 to pursue the one. Jesus will separate the wheat from the tares and the sheep from the goats. He will look at those who did great works and tell them, ‘Depart from me, I do not know you.’ You can do great things to help society, but without the saving message of the Gospel it’s all for not. The message of #OWS is clear, they have no message other than what their actions are proving. I don’t doubt there are authentic people who love America with a passion and want to end corruption (the Tea Party people had that same underlying message), but when it’s done for the sake of Country only it’s doomed for failure. I don’t expect great revival in this country. I don’t expect the US who has legalized murder (Abortion), same sex marriage, and illegal drug use, to return to a false semblance of America the beautiful. I believe the scripture that says evil will wax worse and worse (2 Tim 3:13), brother will betray brother (Mark 13:12), nation against nation, and people against people (Luke 21:10). A great and overwhelming Delusion is upon us! (2 Thess 2:11) We must stand on the ROCK. Careful brethren.
